Summer Whites in the City

Memorial Day Weekend is finally here! I’m more than ready to break out of my cold weather style rut with some fresh summer whites. Dressing for summer in the city can be a bit challenging. Boots + denim + coat is an easy combination for walkable, chic attire – and also the recipe for staring at your closet in May and not exactly remembering how to dress yourself with lightweight skirts, breezy dresses, and shoes less well-suited for city sidewalks.

Summer Whites in the City: Break out of your cold weather style rut with fresh summer style that can take you from errands to a happy hour (and everywhere in between). #summerstyle

I recently popped by the Gilt City Warehouse Sale (basically my favorite sporting event) and snagged some summer pieces. Sign up for Gilt here to get access! This outfit feels casual enough to pop out for errands, but put together enough for rooftop cocktails. How to put it together:

 

// White Off the Shoulder Blouse

Bardot-inspired blouses were everywhere last year, and I’m not mad that they’re back for another round. For 2017, I’m excited to see the trend change a little to include blouses with standout sleeves. This one ties at the wrist for a fun detail.

 

// White Block Heel Sandals

Commit this to memory: a block heel will save your feet. They are so comfortable and easy to walk in! This pair from Pour la Victoire has perforated ankle cuffs with a mid-height heel. Other options:

 

// Minimal Jewelry

I’m over the statement pieces, except on rare occasions. Dainty, gold jewelry is what I’m loving lately. Some of my favorite pieces on repeat come from Vrai & Oro. If you’re looking for more affordable pieces, here’s a few of my picks:

 

// Grey Denim + Neutral Bag

I just snagged these light grey jeans from Frame and I’m in love. They’re the perfect neutral with some detailing on the hem. Add a fun tote (errands) or a simple clutch (night out) to complete your look!

Happy Summer babes! I couldn’t be more excited.
